Tex Mex Breakfast Chimichanga

Lynn Socko


This is one of those recipes where measurements just aren't needed. I used leftover's, fresh veggies, fried taters and of course cheese. The only thing I would suggest, if using meat, make sure it's one you like with eggs. Enjoy!

How to Make Tex Mex Breakfast Chimichanga


  1. I started the process by dicing some red potatoes (4) and onion (1/2) and fried in the same skillet I had cooked steak in the night before.
  2. While that was cooking I diced 2 tomatoes, and 2 jalapeno's and put in a non stick skillet and started cooking them with a little bacon grease I had.
  3. Then I cut the leftover steak up into large bite size pcs. and chopped some cilantro.
  4. Then I popped the steak in my food processor and gave it a whirl to chop it nicely.
  5. Then I added it to the tomatoes and jalapeno's to warm it up.
  6. Once warmed and browned a little, I added the potatoes and onions.
  7. I a bowl I broke about a dozen eggs and added the cilantro and whisked really well.
  8. Then I added the eggs to the meat and veggie mix.
  9. I cooked them stirring constantly till eggs were firm.
  10. Then I added some grated cheese I had leftover and added it to the pan.
  11. I turned off the heat and stirred until the cheese had melted.
  12. I heated my tortillas in the micro for about 2 min. to make them soft and easy to fold without tearing.
  13. I placed a few tbs. of egg mix in the middle, folded the sides over, then rolled it up.
  14. I heated about 2" oil in my skillet and browned them on all four sides.
  15. You can serve them with any condiment you enjoy with eggs, here are a few suggestions:
    Sweet Heat Breakfast Salsa
    Mexican Red Table Salsa, Salsa Roja de Mesa
    Basic Roasted Tomatillos Salsa
